VT Based Minus Zero Fest Announces Bassnectar as a Headliner
“Bassheads” rejoice; the first headliner to appear at Vermont’s Minus Zero Festival for the festival’s second iteration from Friday April 7th to Saturday April 8th will be Lorin Ashton, an American DJ/producer better known by his stage name, “Bassnectar.”
A veteran of the dubstep scene, Bassnectar is sure to cause an avalanche at the Minus Zero Fest where he will headline one of the festival's two days. While set time announcements are still forthcoming, along with the reveal of the festival’s full lineup, it is fair to infer that the “Speakerbox” producer very well may close out the festival in a finale of pumping bass.
Hosted on Vermont’s Stratton Mountain, the Minus Zero Festival debuted on Saturday April 9th and Sunday April 10th of 2016. Featuring two stages—Main Stage and Summit Stage—the festival hosted several big names in electronic dance music, including Deadmau5 who closed the festival’s first day, Jauz, who closed the festival’s second day, Gorgon City, Thomas Jack, and Kaskade. While Minus Zero’s lineup is expected to drop shortly, the festival will surely incorporate the talent of various powerhouse producers, Bassnectar being an example of the caliber of DJs to grace the lineup.
Tickets are currently on sale for the 18+ Minus Zero Fest, offering GA and VIP 2 day passes, in addition to single day GA and single day VIP passes. The 2 day GA pass at the tier one price level begins at $119, while the 2 day VIP pass begins at $295. Bassnectar enthusiasts will want to act fast and purchase tickets before tier pricing increases—given the highly anticipated quality of the lineup, tickets are already selling quickly, with a pace that will only heighten as more lineup announcements are made. Single day GA Friday passes begin at $69, while single day GA Saturday passes are currently being offered at $89. Single day VIP passes alternatively start at $165 for Friday, and $165 again for Saturday.
The Minus Zero Festival represents the opportunity for ravers to depart from the usual summer heat so commonly associated with festival season in order to hit the slopes in a dance music setting.
